Twilight and friends defeated Sombra after his return because Discord refused to fight in their place (and even hammed it up by taking a blow from the Crystal Empire's former ruler). The chaos master pushed the girls to find the magic in themselves to battle back the villain all on their own. But his 'lesson-teaching' gestures seemed extreme this time around, even for him. What is Discord hiding? What is he waiting for? And what does he want no one--neither the girls nor Luna and Celestia--to know? But Equestria's two soon-to-be-retired princesses want to understand.

A story told in several parts that will end when MLP: FIM does and we finally see what's at the end of this friendship rainbow.

Yay! I’m so happy to see you writing again. This got me so excited when you posted this. Can’t wait for the next chapter and especially for MCDE!

Ahh, I'm so exited for this new story from you! This first chapter is amazing and I loved every single moment of reading it. As always, you are a wonderful writer and I can't wait to read more of your stories!

It's weird, but as soon as I saw the season opener I felt like the narrative was saying "Discord won't last the season." Either he'll heroically sacrifice himself to stop Grogar, or he'll retire with Celestia and Luna.

Thank you! I'm just glad to see Discord playing a significant role in the season to give me something new to write about lol :)

9743634
I'm very interested to see how Discord's going to react with him. I have a feeling he's the one villain Discord couldn't easily beat.

Aww, thank you so very much! :twilightsmile: I'm so happy to be writing something new, and I'm really glad Discord's had a presence so far this season to give me inspiration. Hopefully we'll get to see more of him soon (and the bad guys group) so I can add more chapters :yay:

Thanks! :twilightsmile: I'm really glad to be working on something new (but also short lol). I'm having fun drafting the new MCDE chapter too though--it definitely won't be up until after Bronycon, but it's got a lot of cuteness so far lol :trollestia:

Some nice things going on here. Its an enjoyable read for sure and I look forward to more :pinkiehappy:

Seeing Discord act like a big brother to Celestia and Luna is too wholesome and adorable.

I really love it so far
Way more intense and exciting than ur usually romantic storys 😍😍😍
Already pumped for the next one !!

Aw, thank you!!! I'm glad the rest of the season is airing soon so I can see if anything comes up that I can write new chapters about :)

Oh, this is so sweet! I'm a sucker for friends being worried about each other. Discord's so high-strung, I think he'd have a panic attack if a princess coughed at this point.

I do wonder exactly what Discord's afraid of. Does he think Grog would kill him and the girls, or mind control/posses Discord and make him attack Equestria? Either way, I'm praying for a happy ending and NO dead spirits of chaos!

One quick question though, are all of the chapters going to these epilogues to episodes, or are you just taking inspiration from them?

9776204
Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the story! Ever since Discord had that awkward look in the season premiere when the girls talked around him always being around to help, I've been very interested to see what the show has in store for him. As for what he's afraid of...I've got suspicions but not a clear answer myself ^^ So I'm trying to keep the options open in this story for now until we get more info from the eps. My main potential theories are either Grogar has the ability to control Discord since he's the father of monsters, or Discord knows that Grogar at full power is stronger than he is, but since the girls have beat Discord before he knows they might be able to beat Grogar and wants them in top form or Discord is very ready to sacrifice himself to stop Grogar, which means he won't be around to help the girls and wants to make sure they can take care of themselves.

So far I've been planning to keep the chapters as episode epilogues so that they can act as a follow-up to any new info the episodes give us about what might be coming (or any new situations that could freak out Discord). But now that you mentioned the idea, it might be fun to add in a chapter or two not related to any episode. I'll see what ideas come to mind :) Thanks for the thought!

I wish I could upvote single chapters; I'm trash with commenting, but I can't DARE leave a single chapter of this wonderful story bare of comments! You're writing it just so enjoyable :heart:

9790781
Awww, thank you so much for saying that and for the comment! :heart: I know this fic isn't getting as much traffic as others I've worked on, but it's been really fun for me to write and it helps encourage me a lot to hear you're enjoying it :)

Have a wonderful day! I hope you like the next update ^_^

I don't usually comment, but this fic is pretty good so I'd like to give my 2 cents. This characterization of Discord certainly isn't my favourite but it suits the story and so far I'm enjoying it. I'm looking forward to seeing your take on future episodes :)

This was a wonderful chapter! Well, actually, everything you write is wonderful, so it's not a surprise that I enjoyed this one too. I really love how you write Discord, it's always a pleasure to read about him in your stories.

9812371
Aw, thank you :33 Writing this story’s been a little hard since I’m really not sure what it’s leading up to, but thanks for letting me know you’re enjoying things so far :yay: It helps give me confidence lol.

I never realized until now how much I need Flurry/Discord interactions. Heck, as someone who has almost destroyed a city, Flurry should qualify for OOREV membership!

This chapter also made me realize what they're going for with the 3 villains. They have the bell and the book, they will need a candle as well to banish Grogar.

Well heck. I was avoiding reading this until I could find an english version of the leaked episodes, only to find out there weren't any spoilers in it! RIP. Great chapter, I'm only sad that I unnecessarily extended my wait to read it.

9819952
Thank you! And I promise, if anything of mine had spoilers in it there would he huge all caps warnings at the top XD But with all the leaks (and especially with people posting stuff on youtube with spoiler thumbnails without any warnings -_- ) I totally get it. I hope you like what's to come!

Considering this fic's title..... is Discord going to be pulling a Doctor Strange?

9847547
I am not a 100% sure since I'm really making up where he's going with this as I see the new eps lol. But I hope he'll be okay--ever since he got that look in the season premier, I've been worried about whatever he's thinking of doing :fluttershysad:

9856563
Lol, I'm not really going for any ships in this story, but I do appreciate your enthusiasm :)

I believe in the celestia and discord ship but i gotta ask whatd you think of that one line in "she talks to angel" episode

9857203
Angel was pretty sassy in that ep and he was listing Fluttershy cliches at the time--I figured that line was him just expressing some annoyance that Fluttershy makes time for Discord just like she makes time for the sanctuary instead of just spending all of her time with him lol. That line made me laugh so much XD I loved Andrea doing Angel's character in Fluttershy's voice :yay:

9857368

Eeyup it had me laughing too i knew it was a throw away line but i know how some people take things as pure fact and yes you can tell she had a good time doing that voice sassy fluttershy is hilarious

Gosh this fic is so cute; makes me wish episodes would come out faster just so you'd have more material to work with!

I can't wait to hear your opinions on the finale.

Im SO HAPPY you didnt go with the Canon❤
I was so dissapointed by the Grogar Scenario 😭
(Not saying more in case you havent seen the finale)
This Story is better off in an Alternative Universe xD

(No spoilers, just hints that wont tell you anything, untill youve seen the finale xD)

Its going to be really interessting how you progress with this story once you've completed Season 9 xD and im curious to your opinion on the finale haha
You wont suspect a Thing haha

9857382
Well, with what the final episode implies... Yeah, it seems Angel wasn't far off.

9886417

There are many in your face implications in that episode but to me that specific one could have been taken a couple ways

And yes one implying that its all how you take it

9886428
That's true, each to their own I guess, you could say they are still just friends. Although again, the implication that they are living together and hand gestures during the final song. It's kind of hard not to see it in a different light, but again, to each their own.

9886459

Oh i know i agree with ya but i also accept others view on it too


But secretly you're right they together i just wish it was celestia, i dont know how to do that blackout box thing on this site, still a very good finale

Well, this story will surely go on an interesting route.

I rather like where this is going. I look forward to more.
Discord was cool how he defended the wedding like that.
Then the unwillingness to eat the simple cupcake was funny. Dumb trio of villains... :derpytongue2:

Ohhh, Intense-cord is SCARY. I like it. This story is really cool; it adds depth to the show

I hope you decide to make this AU instead of sticking to canon. I'd hate to see this whole story rewritten!

This was such an enjoyable chapter! It really shows how much Discord has grown, and how much he cares for his friends.
I am really curious to see how this story will go after you watch the finale!

Really loved Discord here putting his hoof down at the trio trying to crash Big Mac & Sugar Belle's wedding, he may joke a lot but you don't mess with his friends. 😀

And speaking of friends I loved the interactions between him & Spike, think he's the only one of the main cast (besides Fluttershy) that hangs around Discord the most.

Can wait to see where this story goes after you watch the finale, looking forward to it!:twilightsmile:

I wasn't sure about Discord's characterization in the beginning, but there's a lot to like here. I enjoyed Discord dropping hints to the villain trio about the virtues of friendship, the interactions between Discord/Cadance/Flurry Heart, and the way you've written Fluttershy. Not to mention, the way the villain trio tricked Grogar about buckball was hilarious!

That you've been able to advance a coherent plot while subjecting yourself to the whims of canon is also admirable. I look forward to seeing how you integrate this with the series finale!

I just saw the finale, so as a blanket response to everyone who saw it before or during reading this story—I’m quite interested to see where I go next with this fic too XD :pinkiecrazy: This is going to be a fun one for me, I’m already writing notes and scenes. Stay tuned :yay:
